Book 1 of the bestselling Crimson Worlds series…

Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes.

In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth’s exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

As Erik rises through the ranks he finally finds a home, first with the marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists – men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved.

Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? Who is the real enemy?

Now Included: A sneak peak at Crimson Worlds II: The Cost of Victory. Read the first three chapters, immediately following the end of Marines in this Kindle edition.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The book was action packed from beginning to end. I did not want to put it down until finished. The ending set up the sequel to where I can’t wait to read it.


I am positively delighted to have discovered a new series of scifi marine combat action. The scenarios are believable, the characters developed and engaging, and the tactics and weapons realistic. The Crimson Worlds series is well written and edited. All thumbs up. Thank you.


I thought that this book was excellent. Espirit de corps at its finest!! As an ex-Marine, I found the commraderie true to life and the spirit of brotherhood is a real and gratifying depiction of marine ethics.


Jay Allan writes in a way that keeps you turning the pages. He introduces Erik Cain and then delves into a well fleshed out universe of what war in the future could look like. If you’re looking for space battles, high tech armor and even a dash of romance then this is a series I would recommend highly.


If you are a fan of good writing, great character development, and an interesting world for them to use as their stage… well, you will love the Crimson Worlds series. Military fiction readers will love this one even more. Read these books. If you do not, you will have missed something very special.

About The Author

I currently live in New York City, and I’ve been reading science fiction and fantasy for just about as long as I’ve been reading. My tastes are fairly varied and eclectic, but I’d say favorites are military and dystopian science fiction and epic fantasy, usually a little bit gritty.

I write a lot of science fiction with military themes, but also other SF and some fantasy as well. I like complex characters and lots of backstory and action. Honestly, I think world-building is the heart of science fiction and fantasy, and since that is what I’ve always been drawn to as a reader, that is what I write.

I’ve been an investor and non-fiction writer for a long time, a fiction author more recently. When I’m not writing I enjoy traveling, running, hiking, reading. I love hearing from readers and always answer emails. I think you stop growing as a writer if you stop listening to readers.

Among other things, I write the bestselling Crimson Worlds series.
